The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
What happened this week?
Wow another busy week. I had five cover reveals organized by Lola’s Blog Tours taking place this week, so I spent lost of time promoting those and sharing links to blogs of bloggers who participated in them. I also sent out some emdia kits for the early August tours. No new tours open for sign-up this week though :(. I did finish up my marketing assistant work for this month and got two new Lola’s Kitchen posts written and scheduled for later this year, it feels good to stay two months ahead with those.
Tuesday my colouring book finally arrived. I think it’s the original copy I ordered, which means it got deliver a whole month after it was sent. I love the bookdepository for ordering books, but I don’t think I ever had to wait that long for a book to arrive. Ah well at leats it’s here now and I did some colourign this week.
Snickers is still doing well. She’s almost fully recovered now. Tuesday when put them in bath after I cleaned their cage I noticed something hanging lose ta her side. Her scab had gotten loose, but wa sstill connected to her skin by a stitch. So I carefully got that loose. You can see a bit of the scar from the wound now, but it’s looking really good.
If you are afraid of spiders I would advise to skip this alinea. Wednesday morning as I opened the curtains I noticed a small spider on the window. I picked up my slipper and killed it. I love animals, but I don’t want isnects in my house. After killing that spider I killed another one, abt surprised to have foudn two in the house. Then I looked up and lots of tiny spiders dotted the plafond. Armed with a slipper, electric insect racket, a chair and my hands it took my about an hour to kill them all. Eventually I just switched to killing them with my bare hands as they were so small and I constantly missed them with the slipper and racket. I am not afraid of spiders, but let’s say i will be happy if I don’t see any spiders anymore this week. I still feel itchy every time I remember that morning. My boyfriend is afraid of spdiers and I cna only be happy that he wasn’t home that morning as it was pretty horryfing.
Random Picture(s) of the Week
Remember how I mentioned last week that we got a new cabinet? Well I finally made a picture this week, so I could show it to you all :). My boyfriend and his dad sandpapered and painted it, so it looks like new.
And my colouring book finally arrived! So I spent some time colouring.
One of the pictures I coloured.

The Wolf Wilder
by Katherine Rundell
Source: for review through netgalley
You can find The Wolf Wilder on Goodreads
Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora’s mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans.
When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.

You can find Enchanted Forest on Amazon
This magical coloring book by Johanna Basford takes colorists through an enchanted forest to discover what lies in the castle. Similarly interactive like SECRET GARDEN, ENCHANTED FOREST also features hidden objects and fun mazes. Beginning at the entrance to a fairy-tale forest, the journey progresses through highly embellished woods and through intricate flora. Castles, treasure chests, and other magical elements add a fairy tale narrative to the designs. Special features include a gate-folded two-page spread, and a colorable jacket.
Mamachari Matchmaker (Kami No Sekai Short Story Series #3)
by S.J. Pajonas

You can find Mamachari Matchmaker on Goodreads
This bike longs to be owned by a family with kids but is bought by a quiet, cosplaying, young woman instead.
How will Mamachari help Eriko to find true love?
Shhh… Listen To The Gods.
The Japanese believe the gods live in all things. Trees, appliances, animals, buildings — they all have a spirit living within them. Maybe, if you listen carefully, you can hear them too.
I feel so lucky to have two Pajonas books to read now! After I finish my current read I am going to read Summer Haikus and this one right after each other.
